Obama Loses Edge Over GOP Despite Good Economic News

Micah Cohen notes that President Obama's advantage over Congressional Republicans on economic issues "has all but vanished. Public approval of his handling of the economy has slipped, according to polls, and surveys now show that a roughly equal number of Americans favor Mr. Obama as favor Congressional Republicans on economic matters."

"It is not clear what is causing the decline, but it doesn't seem to be the actual economy. There are increasing signs that the recovery is accelerating. Recent reports on jobs and housing have been unexpectedly strong. And all the while, the stock market has been bullish."
